The Wavelength
Monday April 11th, 2022 with Joe Reilly
Tonight we play music in memory of Riley Taylor and send condolences to his family - parents Dave Dudley (Dave's Drum Shop), Christine Taylor and his sister Shyla.

This past weekend I attended two visitations at the same funeral home. On Sunday I was there to show support for some friends on the death of their 92-year old Mother. She had lived a great and full life, so it was a celebration of her life. On Saturday I was there to show support for friends who are the parents of a 26-year old who had died as a result of opioid plague that is raging here in Canada. We are not wired to deal with the death of a child - notably our own child. This has to be the most difficult situation any person who is a parent can ever face. The show tonight features music about children (sons in particular), death and working through painful circumstances like the death of a child to somehow continue living a life with meaning and joy. I dedicate the show in memory of Riley Taylor and send it out to his family - his Father Dave Dudley, who has drummed with many artists, notably Furnaceface and runs Dave's Drum Shop; his Mother Christine Taylor; and his sister Shyla. Here is the link to Riley's obituary. Let's hope that somehow we begin to get a handle on the devastating opioid crisis that is claiming so many lives across Canada and around the world. Take care out there everybody. Take good care.

Music is a powerful medium that can make us feel connected to others and not so alone ... notably in troubling times. My heart goes out to you Mrs Dudley and all of your family. Thank you for sharing with us.
